IHIF Signs Partnership Agreement with Merrill Corporation Expands Range of Discounted Services Available to Indiana Life Science Firms

For Immediate Release

INDIANAPOLIS (July 9, 2013) – The Indiana Health Industry Forum (IHIF) and Merrill Corporation have signed agreements for Merrill Corporation to become an IHIF Preferred Provider.   Building on the strength of IHIF’s existing member discount and benefit program, the partnership includes discounts for eligible companies on two new services – Virtual Data Rooms and Translation Services.

IHIF President and CEO, Kristin Jones, says, “Merrill Corporation was chosen over other providers of similar services due to Merrill’s extensive range of supporting corporate services, their existing relationships with companies already in Indiana, their global capacity, and perhaps most importantly, their ISO certification for security.  We anticipate that as more of our start-up life science companies negotiate with larger and more global partners, the need for such services will be increasing dramatically”.

Merrill DataSite® is a premier online Virtual Data Room (VDR) solution that efficiently houses critical business information for transactional work such as financing, licensing, collaborating, mergers and acquisitions.  Accessible from an Internet browser, Merrill DataSite dramatically reduces transaction time and expense and allows for multiple parties and prospective buyers to participate concurrently in the due diligence process.

Merrill Brink International offers: comprehensive translation services and capabilities, anywhere in the world, over 30 years of extensive translation experience, a single source for all your language translation projects, smart technology to streamline the process, and a commitment to high quality language translation.

Merrill Corporation Regional Director, Jessie Saini, says, “Merrill Corporation is excited about the new partnership with IHIF and we look forward to serving the Life Science community in Indiana thru our VDR and Translation services”.
